“Once is ok, next time....maybe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

Nothing extraordinary, however our total bill was a bit expensive if I compare it to other KFC outlets I have visited in other countries. I went there with two Nepali Christians, and ordered the usual fare (dinner chicken), curried rice and an extra box of chicken wings for take out plus bottled water. It costs NPR2,200 (about US$30 at the exchange rate during our visit) with the tax added to the cost. Chicken taste/quality was at par with KFC standard though less oily (well, that's subjective, isn't it?). Size is ok (sizes vary from one franchise to another).

The place is big enough but the piped-in (rock) music was ear-busting (at lunch time) and we requested the counter staff to turn it down. No big crowd then, perhaps because it is way above the normal pay wage here, even if the location is along one of the most expensive shopping strips in Kathmandu (Annapurna Complex, Durbar Marg). Toilet was clean at the time so that's a plus.

It was an average experience for me and I have not returned to this KFC outlet during my entire stay in Nepal. Maybe next time....

“Don't be tempted...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

Dirty, loud, surley employees and the chicken...not really sure that it was...overcooked and dry...and cold chips. Really gross...just don't be tempted...I cannot imagine why anyone would go there when there are perfectly other good restaurants in the Dubar Marg area. Skip it.

“disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2011

Accompanied by 2 children we dropped in for an early evening meal because some other restarants were shut till 6pm. We did not finish our food and went elsewhere. It was devoid of any flavour, stringy chicken, perhaps undercooked. The meat tasted like our battery chicken rather than the free range that is common in Kathmandu. Yet it is expensive by Kathmandu standards.

“It's KFC? what did I expect”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

Of course coming to Nepal from America and living in Kentucky for 15 years I kinda knew what to expect. Low and behold half way around the world and Kentucky Fried Chicken lives up to my expectations. Oh you ask what are the KFC expectations? 1. so greasy it actually pores out of the chicken when you bite it 2. Midget chickens what I mean is the legs are so small they have to come from Midget Chickens. 3. service sucks. So anyway at least they are keeping it real in Nepal as well. Come on KFC visit your competition and let them teach you how to cook chicken right and hire people that can smile and for the sake of all, leave those little chickens alone.

“It most definitely was not "Finger lickin' good".”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

KFC Kathmandu, situated on Darbar Marg, was not anything special. The only reasons I am writing this review is because at times the Westerners get so fed-up of the local chow that they start craving for burgers and fried chicken and because they "claim to" sell halal chicken. I would still prefer authentic halal food eateries like Anatolia. The food was oily, unexciting and not as well cooked as in Pakistan, Malaysia and Thailand. The only thrilling thing there were the KFC Krushers specially the Kafeccinos.
